Your Local Scheme
Oakridge Park Neighbourhood Watch
The main aim of our Neighbourhood Watch scheme is to create a partnership between the local community, the police and the local authority. Objectives To prevent crime by improving security, increasing vigilance, creating and maintaining a caring community and reducing opportunities for crime by increasing crime prevention awareness. To assist the police in detecting crime by promoting effective communication and the prompt reporting of suspicious and criminal activity. To reduce undue fear of crime by providing accurate information about risks and by promoting a sense of security and community spirit, particularly amongst the more vulnerable members of the community. To improve police/community liaison by providing effective communications through Neighbourhood Watch messaging systems which warn Co-coordinators of local crime trends which they can disseminate to their scheme members, and by members informing the police of incidents when they occur.
